About the Reserve Bank Museum

Summary

The Reserve Bank Museum is the only specialist economic and central banking museum in New Zealand, designed to educate and inform, highlighting and celebrating New Zealand’s wider economic and banking history, as well as the origins and role of the Reserve Bank.

The decision to establish a banking and economic museum in the Reserve Bank of New Zealand was taken during 2003-04, following the development of similar museums by central banks overseas, and the introduction of museums by government departments such as Parliamentary Services.
